The President of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, presided over the official signing of the Studies, Design and Supervision Contract for the Future Regiotram del Norte Line. The contract was signed by Findeter S.A., the Consortium “ARCO Bogotá Zipa”, made up of Ardanuy ingeniería S.A. and Coral Delgado y Asociados Abogados, as well as the Joint Venture “Egis, Deloitte, Duran & Osorio”.
The event took place at the President’s Official Residence, La Casa Nariño, and all biosafety protocols to combat COVID-19 were strictly observed. The Governor of the Department of Cundimarca, Nicolás García, as well as other local authorities also attended the signing.
With the signing of this contract, the Consulting and Supervision Phase for one of the country’s most important infrastructure projects has been officially launched. The Project expects to receive a total future investment of approximately 1.5 Billion U.S. Dollars. This phase of the works will be directed by the Colombian Government through their Financial Territorial Development Agency, FINDETER, and supported by the British Government’s Prosperity Fund. Regiotram Norte will be built as a railway connection line for both passenger and freight trains between Bogotá and Zipaquirá. In this first stage, feasibility studies and designs will be carried out for the technical, legal, financial and gender equality and social inclusion structuring of this new railway.
During his speech, Iván Duque thanked the participation of the companies and entities that will be in charge of moving this corridor forward, Ardanuy Ingeniería Colombia being amongst these different companies. Furthermore, Duque also emphasized the relevance of continuing with investments of this kind which are particularly important for the future of the country despite the extraordinary situation we are currently living with due to COVID-19. For the President of Colombia, Regiotram del Norte “represents one of the most important and strategic corridors for the region and undoubtedly will imply a change in the quality of life and mobility for a great number of citizens”.
The Governor of the Department of Cundimarca, Nicolás García, took this opportunity to remind all present that he would continue to work alongside the Executive Government to further develop his department, stating that “these adversities aren’t going to stop us, but will only make us stronger and that’s why both Cundimarca and the Country itself are demonstrating that with the Regiotram del Norte Project we continue to create jobs and progress”.
For Ardanuy Colombia’s Country Manager, Óscar Andrés Rico, participating in the Regiotram del Norte Project is a chance to work on reactivating key railway corridors in Colombia and a way to advance mobility development for the future of the country.
In March 2020, the Consortium “ARCO Bogotá Zipa”, made up of Ardanuy Ingeniería Colombia and Coral Delgado y Asociados was chosen to oversee the contract supervision for the planned feasibility studies and designs concerning the freight and passenger railway between Bogotá and Zipaquirá.
